Rush and more: Twitter reacts to Liverpool’s season-best performance
Ian Rush and Terry McDermott revel in Liverpool's performance
Ian Rush has hailed Liverpool’s top-class performance after the Reds drew 1-1 with Chelsea in their League Cup semi-final first-leg clash at Anfield on Tuesday.
Belgium international Eden Hazard temporarily halted a brisk Liverpool start to the cup tie after he dispatched a first-half penalty following Emre Can’s foul.
However, Liverpool hit back courtesy of Raheem Sterling’s brilliant solo goal, although the hosts couldn’t find a winner despite 20 attempts on Thibaut Courtois’ goal.
But former Liverpool legends were still impressed by the Reds performance against the Premier League leaders, prompting a flurry of tweets late Tuesday night and Wednesday morning.
Here is a selection of the best Twitter reaction from the professionals, past and present, in chronological order to a thrilling League Cup encounter.
Former Reds midfielder Terry McDermott (@TerryMac777) felt Brendan Rodgers’ side deserved a winner: “Fantastic @Lfc performance last night and unlucky not to win, a special goal from @sterling31 and all to play for next week now #Lfc”
